falce f (plural falci)
- falcetto (“sickle”)
- falciare (“to mow”)
From Latin falx, falcem (“sickle”), ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *dʰelk-, *dʰelg- (“a cutting tool”). Cf. Medieval Latin falcata. See also the related form falcă (“jaw”), which underwent further semantic evolution from the original etymology of "sickle" in Latin.
